Gerri Sayler uses both natural and industrial fibers as sculptural media to create site-specific installations. Conceptually, her work references the cycles of nature and the nature of time, and speaks of living in this world, grounded by our sense of touch. Her recent solo exhibit history includes Suyama Space (Seattle), Bellevue Art Museum, Missoula Art Museum, Boise Art Museum, the University of Wyoming Art Museum and Sun Valley Center for the Arts. She has been awarded fellowships for Jentel, Brush Creek and Holden Village artist residencies, and several grants from the Idaho Commission on the Arts. She lives with her husband, Kenton Bird, and two perpetually weird cats in Moscow, where the textured fields of the Palouse nourish her passion for making art with fibers.
